Hello Kitty at Thirty
When it comes to Hello Kitty or anything kawaii, I compromise everything. I told myself I didn't need a new pair of shoes this year, but I bought a pair of the Hello Kitty + Vans collab pair (even if I already have the Dr. Marten pair. Tsk, tsk!) I'm also really against using anything that has chemicals (at what I could best control at least) on my body and in my home, and of course, I had to pick up this toxic-ridden glue nail set. Yes, they feel a little funny typing this, but they also match my shoes.
I've questioned having "cutesy" things many times, I remember reading many, many "fashion don'ts" and Hello Kitty is one of them, and I've wondered if growing up (or lack of) has ultimately lead me to this obsession. It doesn't matter. They ultimately make me happy to look at them and to have them. Now why on Earth would I deny myself happiness?
Are you a Sanrio/kawaii fangirl like me?
